Description

Marinated olives are a stunning appetizer or side! Flavored with garlic and lemon, they’re a great finger food for cheese boards or parties.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 6-ounce dry weight cans pitted ripe olives packed in water (green, medium black, or large black, not flavored or stuffed)
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • Scant 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 rosemary or tarragon sprigs, plus additional for serving if desired

Instructions

  1. Drain the olives. Peel and thinly slice the garlic. Cut 4 strips from the lemon peel, then squeeze out 1 tablespoon of the juice.
  2. In a 1 quart jar or covered container, combine all ingredients and shake gently to combine.
  3. Marinate for 2 to 4 hours at room temperature, shaking occasionally. Serve immediately, garnishing with additional rosemary sprigs if desired. Stores refrigerated for several weeks; allow to come to room temperature prior to serving.
